None at all. It actually shares a lot with the Mazda3 of all things though.I heard somewhere that the new Mustang is based off a modified version of the Mazda 6's platform. Is there any truth to this?
Nope. For some reason this continues to be published, but it's simply not true. The DEW98 platform was knocked out of the running for the new Mustang a long time before it came to production. It was just too expensive to produce, it was never designed for a cheap mass-production car like the Mustang. It would have added 30% on to the cost of the Mustang to use that platform, and simply wasn't feasible. Although the basic design of the LS platform was kept (which could be said for just about any RWD car), the similarities end there. The Mustang platform actually shares far more with the Mazda3's C1 platform than with the DEW98 platform.no, the new mustang is based off Lincoln LS and the new Thunderbird.[/b]
